Thanks

It seems like I can use a thank you card. In my quest to use up my kit I have ended up with a little of this and a little of that. This card sketch is perfect for using up those little bits that you just can't part with because they are so cute.

Card Sketch #114



I would love to see what you come up with so come and join us over at Sketch-N-Scrap

Sledding

Have you ever wanted to be on a Design Team?

Have you ever thought about trying out?

At Sketch-N-Scrap we have Guest Designers! This is a perfect way to try out the Design Team life and see if it is all you thought it would be. We would love to have you enter into the New Beginnings Crop Designer Challenge

I have a confession to make. I wanted to just use one photo for this sketch and flip it to go along with another single page I did but when I started laying out the page...with pieces because my pile is getting smaller (YAY) I messed up. I added the paper with the words going down it I knew it wouldn't make sense so I had to leave it as is. Well the photo I wanted to use was going the wrong way so I just added a few more pics and mad this work for me. In the end I love how it turned out and I always enjoy getting more photos on a page when I can so this was a win win for me.



Here is the Sketch #97

Love Birds

This year one of goals is to send more cards. Since I want to send more cards I would like to have more cards on hand.

Funny side note: I originally got this adorable little stamp when it was retiring and I needed stamps to play around with for my wedding invitations. I ended up not using it for that and went another direction with my invitation...I threw that one out the window as well when we decided to just elope instead.

Back to this sweet little card. I wanted to see if I could use winter papers for something not winter related. Here is what i came up with -


What do you think? Does it scream winter? I hope not I was going for love and romance.
Here is the sketch for this last crop challenge #4 over at the New Beginnings Crop it is Card Sketch #41

Snow

I hope you have been able to join in our fun over on Facebook for the new Beginnings Crop... this is 3rd sketch challenge I hope you can play along. 

I thought this was a fun sketch to capture my little ones love of snow. She was a not a big fan the first time she went out in it but once she figured out it snows around her birthday it was true love. I swapped out the two smaller photos for one large one.

I have some papers I am going to be using up from an old PersonalScrapper kit from January of 2012! That doesn't' seem like that long ago but now that it is 2018 it is 6 years ago. I think it is time to stop hording these cute papers and start using them. Here is the first of several projects I will be featuring on my blog in the near future.

New year...new goals...CLEAN studio

Well not that Christmas is over I had to get my studio under control it was pretty insane back there!

Before:

I had piles everywhere and just a general over all mess! It is hard to be creative when you are in such a mess. So I started digging out while I was still lucky enough to be on winter break.

I dug deep! I dug out old cards that I had made kits for back in my stampin' up days. I think that is from like around 2003 or so...wow!

I will be honest I started to toss the little papers in the trash. But then I felt a little guilty so I dug them out and sorted, and sorted, and sorted, and cut, and sorted. Now I have a bunch more pre-stamped images...after I worked so hard to get rid of them this last year (haha)

Here is what happened! Now when I want to make a card I have card bases in the back and scraps in the front. I don't have to cut into my beautiful 12 x 12 papers I can use these up.

I also reorganized my PL stuff because I am planning on doing that again this year.
